Welcome to Saarlouis!

In 1970 the production in Saarlouis started. At that time the region was characterized by the mining and steel industry. Nowadays the automobile industry presents one of the most important economic sectors in the Saarland.

The Ford-Werke GmbH in Saarlouis is an initiator and an engine of growth for the Saarland. More than 14 million Ford models have been produced in Saarlouis so far. As a consequence it is known as one of the most productive and efficient factories in Europe.

In addition, it is also the largest employer in the Saarland. Approximately 5.800 employees work at Ford with an additional 1.500 at its’ suppliers.

Saarlouis is known for its high flexibility as each production line produces up to 5 different models and more than 28 versions. Around 80% of the produced units are exported to 80 countries. This presents one third of the whole export volume of the federal state. Ford in Saarlouis accounts for more than the states average.
